Prayer


Lord, grant me eyes to see

The hands that guide my feet by night

Lord, grant me ears to hear

Your words so dear

Lord, wipe away the tears

Why am I always in fear?

Lord, grant me grace to forgive

The LIPS that continue to clap and beat

Lord, grant me peace of mind

Help me Lord your Grace to find

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
